Manly Performance
5 February 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This box-office flop did nothing whatsoever to stir audiences. The 22 year old John Wayne appears pleasantly natural, although still quite rustic as a result of rejecting tutoring from Broadway veterans. His personality outweighs his experience as an actor.
